The National War Memorial is constructed to commemorate the martyrs of the Indian Army, Navy and Air Force which have made supreme sacrifices in the service of the nation.

This iconic project has been built in the heart of the national capital, New Delhi and is spread across 40 acres (161874 sqm). It includes a Central Obelisk, an Eternal Flame, and six bronze Murals depicting famous battles fought by the Army, Navy and Air Force.

The memorial is developed in four lawns of the C - Hexagon and consists of the following design zones: Param Veer Chakra Park; Children Park Lawn; Lawn around the Canopy; and Footpath on the Periphery and Axial roads of C - Hexagon.

The names of approximately 25,942 soldiers who have been martyred since India's Independence have been inscribed here. The Param Veer Chakra Park with landscape elements is designed to commemorate the conferees of the highest gallantry award. The bust with a brief citation of 21 Param Veer Chakra awardees has been arranged in an organic manner in the park with the intention to retain the existing trees and landscape.
